The Austrian car market is up for the third month in a row with 28,713 registrations and +7%, and the VW Golf stays safely on top at 1,207 sales and 4.2% (vs. 5.2% year-to-date).
This month’s best performance goes to the Hyundai i30, #2 for the 2nd time this year with 3.2% (it got 3.9% in August), it climbs onto the podium year-to-date with 6,756 sales and 2.4%, behind the Golf and the Polo (3.9%).
Notice the excellent overall score of the Seat Ibiza, #4 year-to-date, Austria being its best country outside the Iberian peninsula. Other strong performers in October include the VW Touran (6th), Tiguan (7th) and new gen Sharan (pictured below), excelling in 14th position and 1.5%, just ahead of the Ford Galaxy. Austria is indeed much more fond of German MPV’s than Germany itself.
